This is one book in a series about a Quaker minister returning to the small town of his childhood, Harmony. The books is simply, but sweetly written. It is full of wonderful characters and situations. It reminds me of Jan Karon's Mitford series. And the format is more like short stories within a book.
This second book in the Harmony series had me laughing out loud. I actually read this 2nd book first. You don't have to read in order, but if you do, you'll probably be able to keep up with some of the characters you meet in Harmony. If you don't laugh out loud when you read how to get a stubborn mule to move, then you must be really depressed.
This book had me snickering many times! I enjoy how Philip Gulley describes the sometimes mundane things in life and his relationships with the fellow townspeople and church goers. How he puts up with a couple of his "flock" is beyond me!
A good read. Sam has an unexpected crisis of faith.
